candidates
Question from Anthony De Guzman on 04-02-2005:

who are the Holy candidates for now to be the successor of Pope John Paul II, to lead God's flocks?

Answer by Matthew Bunson on 04-08-2005:

Technically, any unmarried Christian male may be elected. It is likely that the next pope will be from among the members of the College of Cardinals. The last non-Cardinal elected was in 1378.
